Walk Details

If following the full Cornwall Railway walk is a bit too far for you – then this is a great section of it. What’s more – it’s wheelchair and pushchair friendly too as it is a purpose-built track that is relatively flat.

The walk follows the route of the disused mineral tramway line that was used back in the 1800’s for the local copper mines.

Now it’s a Coast-to-Coast Trail from the port of Devoran on the south coast (where we’re starting) and going across to the harbour of Portreath on the north coast.

In this walk we’re only doing a small segment of the trail – but you can do as much or as little of it as you like. We start the walk from the Devoran Bissoe Trail Car Park and followed the cycle trail to Bissoe, where there is a café and accessible loos. The route is very straight forward, just follow the track!

This is a popular trail for cyclists – so keep an eye out for them!

Our trail finishes at the Bike Chain Bike Hire in Bissoe. From here you’ll either need to retrace your steps back to your car or consult your map to get you to your next destination.

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
